Luiza Prado de O. Martins (DE/BR)

Artist and researcher Luiza Prado de O. Martins (b. 1985, Brazil) engages with material and visual culture through the lenses of decolonial and queer theories. O. Martins holds an MA from the Hochschule für Künste Bremen, and a PhD from the Berlin University of the Arts. She is a founding member of the Decolonising Design collective and the research duo A Parede. Her current artistic research project, titled “A Topography of Excesses,” starts from a call to re-appropriate the concept of excess in relation to gendered and racialized bodies in the modern/colonial gender system.
